Quinlan Professor and Fulbright Scholar Returns from Research Project in Poland

Quinlan Professor Maciek Nowak

Maciek Nowak, an Associate Professor at the Quinlan School of Business, recently returned from overseas, where he spent time abroad as a Fulbright Scholar. In a recent interview following his return, he spoke directly about his work with Poland’s postal service, Poczta Polska.

Speaking with the student reporter Monica Sather, Nowak talked about the workshop, his research, and his experience abroad as a Fulbright Scholar.

“I learned more about my background, as I was born in Poland but moved when I was very young. Spending six months in Poland gave me a much better sense of what daily life is like and allowed me to experience many of the traditions that I had taken part in on a much smaller scale while growing up in the U.S. It was just awesome.

I would encourage any faculty member or student to apply to the Fulbright program. Through the Fulbright, you have the opportunity to serve as an ambassador of the U.S., connecting to such a broad range of people of different backgrounds and nationalities while being a part of a group that represents some of the best our country has to offer.”

Nowak spent six months working with Warsaw School of Economics faculty in effort to help the logistics network of the Poczta Polska. He also co-organized the Route Optimization/VEhicle Routing (ROVER) workshop, which brought together 20 of the top North American and European experts in transportation science.

According to his bio page, Nowak has worked with Federal Express, United Parcel Service, and the Georgia Ports Authority in past research projects. He has also received grants from the Federal Highway Administration, the U. S. Department of Transportation, and the U.S. State Department.

Nowak’s research has been published in Transportation Science, European Journal of Operational Research, Computers & OR, and the Journal of Transportation Management.
